Scilly Cay Joins The Anguilla Card

Set on a tiny island off of the coast of idyllic Island Harbour in East End Anguilla, Scilly Cay is a gem of a spot. To get there? Head to the Island Harbour pier. If Scilly Cay's boat's not there, just wave at the island. It'll be there in a few minutes. This is where the one of a kind dining experience begins!

The waters within the bay are always calm and you arrive before you can say "Scilly Cay on a Fine Day"! From the moment we step onto the dock, we always think, "I've never seen anything quite like this." In a word? It is breathtaking.

It's the only building on the tiny island in the middle of the bay. Its views of Island Harbour are panoramic. No electricity here! All you hear is the lapping of water and the rustling of palms. Being stranded on a desert island could be tougher :-)

What's for lunch? Scilly Cay is famous for their very strong and tasty $5 rum punches and mouthwatering crayfish and lobster.

The plate is picture-perfect. Lobsters and crayfish are brushed with garlic butter and served with warm French garlic bread, fresh pasta salad and fruit salad. Fresh and al fresco Anguilla dining... it doesn't get better than this!

Scilly Cay is open Wednesday & Sunday for lunch.

Where Happiness Awaits...

Oh, Palm Grove… where to even begin? Our love affair with this sandy beach shack runs deep.

Set on Junk’s Hole, Palm Grove (aka Nat’s) is an off-the-beaten path gem. Extra-tranquil, this low-key, open air beach bar takes full advantage of its location.

The best way to begin an afternoon at Palm Grove? With Nat’s famous rum punch. Fruity and delicious, buyer BEWARE. These tasty drinks sure can sneak up on you ;-)

What’s for lunch? Crayfish so fresh, you may even see the fisherman hand-deliver your lunch, live. Once in Nat’s hand, Nat boils his crayfish to seal in the juices. Then he BBQ’s and spices them to perfection.

As Nat approaches with a giant tray of crayfish, our mouths always water…

Time after time, year after year, Nat’s crayfish go down as our favorite in Anguilla!

Juicy, loaded with flavor, nothing comes close. Nat serves his crayfish with all of the trimmings, too. BBQ orders come with coleslaw, hand-cut fries and some of the all time best Johnny cakes in Anguilla. Fluffy and puffy, each bite is heaven!

It is a Caribbean feast fit for a king!

The quintessential Anguilla beach bar experience, if you haven’t been to Nat’s, you haven’t been to Anguilla 😉

Nat’s is open daily for lunch. Closed Monday.

Save 10% at Nat's when you use your Anguilla Card. To purchase your Anguilla Card, click here.
